Season's Greetz Fly Out To...

If you've played around with computers long enough you know what chip tunes are. Before we all had 6 squillion channel sound cards most consoles and computers had a chip or two for producing sound. Talented musicians learnt how to screw the maximum out of these with some amazing music in a style that became known as chip tunes. These tunes didn't use samples but played notes with various effects programmed in.

So what's that got to do with anything? How about a free album of Christmas tunes in a scene stylee (hence the title of this post) with the tunes performed on a variety of old computers and consoles including several I've owned.
